'60 Minutes' keeps on the news and is rewarded by viewers
FILE - "60 Minutes" correspondent Lesley Stahl poses for a photo in her office at the "60 Minutes" offices, in New York on Sept. 12, 2017. It's not the first time that's been said about “60 Minutes” since its 1968 debut. After executive producer Bill Owens turned the show primarily over to COVID-19 coverage last spring, “60 Minutes” has returned to its traditional format while being focused on being timely. “60 Minutes” this fall has featured interviews with fired government cybersecurity chief Chris Krebs, former President Barack Obama and poisoned Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny. Original executive producer Don Hewitt often ran “60 Minutes” as an island unto itself.
